Engineering and technology is for everyone! We know that. You know that. But do your students?
Research shows that girls tend to drop STEM subjects at every decision point throughout their schooling (despite generally performing better than boys in those subjects), and that they are less likely than boys to feel they could become an engineer if they wanted to.
But here’s some good news: studies also show that exposure to the sector from a young age, through engaging activities and relatable role models, can turn the trend around.
The old adage ‘you can’t be what you can’t see’ rings true here. This collection will help teachers demystify engineering, enabling young people from all walks of life to defy stereotypical views of who can become an engineer and what this entails.
